manipulation is irrelevant, what happened here is everyone front loaded their optimism, and so far have been strung along for a long time with excuses and lost patience. It doesn't take a genius to see the company is probably issuing shares for a fraction of the share price to stay afloat, and, there are many people with more shares than they feel comfortable with.
Why do i as a former investor that sold out want to get back in now? I will wait for either
A) an attractive risk
B) tangible results (can't trust news and promises)
If you think the share price is crashed now, I'm afraid you have trouble seeing the Forrest through the trees. this has been riding at extreme valuations at one point over a 100 million dollars.. for a company with no revenue and little if any history of it, and very old patents.
before hand when the company was on the verge of capitation is was hovering .05.. we are still up way above that point 400%+, and really little revenue to support such a change, it's all optimism that has run out.
I'll be happy to step in and support nano at .10-.15 area, with a little risk. I fully expect nothing to come of it, but i also expect there is an off chance it might. And if I'm going to take on this huge risk, i want decent returns and 100-200m priced company, might not even get me my investment back if it isn't a world wide blockbuster success. But at .10 i might make a very good return even if it is a moderate success with limited sales.
So what? The more you talk about it, the more it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Pessimism only breeds more pessimism. Manipulation? Possibly, probably, who cares? It can't go on forever. If we really have something here, and in my opinion we do, there will come a point where manipulation becomes impossible. But it does no honest investor any favors to keep harping on every piece of negativity we experience. Why don't we all focus on the positive, for a change?
